A Bathroom for Busy Lifestyles

Two working professionals with very active children needed a bathroom that would keep up with their busy lifestyle and help them unwind at the end of the day. Lack of storage, dated finishes, a failing shower and, window added to their dissatisfaction. The view of the toilet while soaking in the tub was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

McCabe By Design LLC was the builder responsible for all aspects of the project, with Molly McCabe as the designer.

The bathroom is long and narrow, which posed unique limitations, along with a lot of wasted space. After several uninspiring design iterations (for both the couple and the designer), McCabe threw a stick of dynamite into the design layout — and a doorless wet room was born, providing space for all the amenities the homeowners desired. By taking advantage of a wet wall in the laundry room below, the toilet was successfully moved to the opposite end of the room and the bathtub occupant no longer has a view of the toilet.
